It’s been close to 3 years now since the split between Carvin Audio and Carvin Guitars (now Kiesel Guitars), a family torn apart by bitter internal business differences that couldn’t be resolved. Today, Carvin audio announced that it is closing down its factory after 70 years and liquidating their stock (although they haven’t really marked it down that hard yet, so I imagine they’ve got a lot of stock to get through.
We have very little information to go on at this time, and whether the company will continue on in some form or not is unclear.
According to a Facebook post from 6:30 today, the company has said:
To all our amazing Carvin Audio fans and friends,
It is with a heavy heart that we announce that the Carvin Audio factory will be closing its doors after over 70 years.
We are thankful for the many years we’ve had in this business and the support you all have given us.
We’d like to thank all of you for your devotion to our gear and championing us live, in the studio, and on social media. We hope to see our gear live on in your musical lives for many years to come!
Shortly, we will be making an announcement about our liquidation sale.
Thank you all!
The Carvin Audio Team
